In light of the coronavirus pandemic, this summer, our annual residential programme took place virtually. With participants connecting entirely online, we managed to maintain almost all of the key elements that make this project so special and impactful.
Sixteen talented First Story students go on a week-long writing retreat at the Arvon centre, Lumb Bank.
We’re thrilled to share the 2016 Residential Anthology which is full of brave new writing.
The 2015 Residential Anthology is here and is jam-packed with a host of exciting new voices.
Listen to interviews with First Story students, talking candidly about their experience of participating in the programme.
We are very proud to present the First Story Residential Anthology 2014.
1 house, 5 days, 6 Writers-in-Residence, 60 talented young writers, and over 450 poems and stories written.
